Defending the Free Market

Robert Sirico
pubblicato da Regnery Publishing

Prezzo online:

Thirty years ago, the economic system of the Soviet empiresocialismseemed definitively discredited. Today, the most popular figures in the Democratic Party embrace it, while the shapers of public opinion treat capitalism as morally indefensible. Is there a moral case for capitalism? Consumerism is an appalling spectacle. Free markets may be efficient, but are they fair? Aren't there some things that we can't afford to leave to the vicissitudes of the market?

Robert Sirico, a onetime leftist, shows how a free economyincluding private property, legally enforceable contracts, and prices and interest rates freely agreed to by the parties to a transactionis the best way to meet society's material needs. In fact, the free market has lifted millions out of dire povertyfar more people than state welfare or private charity has ever rescued from want.

But efficiency isn't its only virtue. Economic freedom is indispensable for the other freedoms we prize. And it's not true that it makes things more important than peoplejust the reverse. Only if we have economic rights can we protect ourselves from government encroachment into the most private areas of our livesincluding our consciences.

Defending the Free Market is a powerful vindication of capitalism and a timely warning for a generation flirting with disaster.
